"What we have seen is very severe, they are lying to him, there is footage of him being dragged, there was organized harassment" - Nika Gvaramia on the footage of Mikheil Saakashvili


The meeting with lawyers of Georgia's third president ended at the State Inspectorate.

As lawyer Nika Gvaramia noted after the meeting, the footage of Mikheil Saakashvili being transferred from Rustavi prison to Gldani is quite severe.

According to him, in the footage it is clearly seen that the third President has been deceitfully transferred to Gldani. Episodes of use of force against Mikheil Saakashvili are also depicted.

"What we have seen is much darker and more severe. The footage shows that the man was indeed tricked and refused to be treated where he was taken, to Gldani. He requested to go back and no one had the right to transfer him. It also seems that they were lying, that he was brought in for analysis and it would have been a quick affair, which turned out to be a lie. They also lied that his lawyers and family members were coming soon, which turned out to be false, since you remember we were standing there and they wouldn't let us in.

Then the entry footage is very hard to watch, the use of force. Not all angles are there, sometimes the ramp is covered, sometimes so... Most importantly it's footage of him being dragged and it's very dark to see. Most importantly, it seems that a so called "Shumok", which is a form of verbal harassment, was organised, - Said Nika Gvaramia
